Fundamentals Certificate

Application & Quiz Process

The all-new training and certificate program for non-licensed direct care staff and individual caregivers.

To participate in the Brain Injury Fundamentals program, candidates must attend a Fundamentals training, pass a post-training online quiz, and submit a form and relevant fees to claim their certificate. Please see below for in-depth instructions. 

Step One

Candidates must register for an official course with a Brain Injury Fundamentals Instructor. If you would like to apply to take the course, sign up here to be notified about course availability or email us for more information.  

Step Two

The Fundamentals bundle must be purchased prior to the course. Certificates cannot be processed until payment has been confirmed. 

Payment should be received by BIAA at least three weeks in advance of the training to ensure workbooks will arrive in time for use. Please note: Orders received by 3 p.m. EST Thursday will ship on Friday. Payments made past that time will ship out the following Friday.  

If you wish to make your payment via check, please include this accompanying form.
If you wish to make your payment via credit card, payments may be made in BIAA’s Marketplace through this link.

*Please remember to make note of your check number or the BIAA Marketplace confirmation number as you will need to enter it in the designated field on the Brain Injury Fundamentals form when claiming the certificate (see step five for details).

Step Three

Attend the Brain Injury Fundamentals course. The instructor and/or class administrator will provide further instructions on how to receive the certificate including access to the online quiz.

Step Four

Complete the Brain Injury Fundamentals quiz provided by the instructor. The quiz must be taken post-training. 

  • The quiz is administered online.
  • The quiz is open-book and open-notes.
  • There are 34 multiple choice questions and two ungraded short answer questions.
  • Candidates must score 80% or higher on the quiz in order to receive the certificate.

Notification of Quiz Score: Candidates will receive immediate notification of their quiz score upon submission. Information about individual candidates and quiz results will not be released to any party other than candidates. Candidates’ scores are not released to anyone, including the candidate, by telephone.

Retakes: Candidates who do not pass the quiz on the first administration may retake the quiz with unlimited attempts within one year of the training date at no additional charge.

Step Five

After scoring 80% or higher on the quiz, complete this form to claim your certificate that documents your participation in the Brain Injury Fundamentals program. The certificate must be claimed within one year from the date of training. A certificate will be issued to you via email once your attendance of training, receipt of payment and successful completion of the quiz and form are verified.
